I modified Valori Well's Urban Baby pattern for this quilt. I love how it looks completely random but isn't. :) It was so much fun picking out the fabric for this quilt. I started with that really loud one and went from there.
This was a gift for a close friend's daughter who was born in May. I was a bit bummed when I heard the name they chose for her since it is one of my two favorite baby girls names. (In fact I had a flash/premonition as she was getting ready to tell me. I wanted to cover my ears and go," Don't say it, don't say it!" I just knew in my heart she was going to say Penelope. I'm not sure how I knew, but I just did.) I was heartbroken for about two weeks. My husband thought I was being weird. Trying to make me feel better, he said he never would have agreed to name our next one Penelope anyhow. (Men!) Once I got over it I figured the girl with my favorite name should be the owner of my favorite quilt and I set out to "make it so".
The cupcake fabric was something I bought on clearance over a year ago. I think I originally bought it to make myself PJ pants but never got around to it. I am glad I didn't. It makes for such a fun backing.
Now go visit some of the other sites that are in the Festival! :)
